Donegal hotel prepares for nuclear disaster and hopes to make some money in the process.

Jackson's Hotel in Ballybofey county Donegal is making an underground disco available as a nuclear shelter at a price of £250 a head.

Barry Jackson, Manager of Jackson's Hotel, describes the facilities on offer at the hotel and believes that the disco could hold 400 people comfortably in the event of a nuclear accident.

Reporter Cathal MacCoille suggests that people may think he is cashing in on people's fears as a result of the Chernobyl disaster. 

When asked about the public interest in his venture Mr Jackson says

We've had nobody paying up front yet.
